As we await the long-anticipated start of what’s going to be a season to remember for the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Sports Betting wanted to bring in a respected voice to help preview the upcoming season. We were fortunate to steal a few minutes with Alex Rajaniemi (Raj) of Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 who is the host of the Between the Pipes Avalanche postgame show. We previewed the season and ran through the hottest topics regarding the Avs ahead of their season opener.
The Avalanche have the best odds to win the 2021 Stanley Cup at +700 odds, with their superstar Nathan MacKinnon sitting with the second-best odds for both the Hart Memorial (MVP) @+550 and the Art Ross (Points Leader) @+500.
The Avalanche are in a situation that looks to be even more favorable with the new division alignment this year, and with some local books looking to put the Avalanche win total at around 34-37 wins, the hot futures bet looks to be the over on total win.
Colorado opens the season up against the St. Louis Blues Wednesday at 8:35 p.m. and remain favorites on the Moneyline @ -143 with a puck-line of 1.5. The Avalanche will get Thursday off and return to action on Friday against the Blues once more.
NHL hockey will be back in a major way with essentially three Avalanche games a week for the next four months. There will be mountains of Avalanche hockey to take action on, and Denver Sports Betting serves to be your guiding light this year.
